Extensive Definition

Paška čipka, a type of lacework from the Island of Pag, requires a needle, thread and backing which is a round or square hard stuffed pillow.
Lace-makers of Pag did their teg (work) without any drawings. Each woman used works from her mother and grandmothers as examples, each adding a personal touch, something unique and special. Each lace piece is a symbol of the anonymous, modest and self-sacrificing life of its maker.
